It's finally here...STREETCON (Street Art Connection) kicks off today and runs until 2 May at Al Ghurair Centre. The urban art festival will bring together art, music and street culture, with over 20 local and international artists involved.
Among the many activities and art installations on offer are regular workshops with Dubai-based street art collective, The Brownmonkeys; a mural wall created by artist Tarsila Schubert; an exhibition of bicycles transformed into artworks; and a moving display of photographs documenting the stray cats of Dubai by artist Jandri Angelo Aguilar.
Not to be missed - Capsule Arts artist Matt Ryder will also be doing some live painting, creating an incredible paint splattered, UV-lit Neon Room! You can see more work by Matt and buy art prints of his work here.
